Meghan McCain Right That Sarah Jessica Parker Should Not Call Obama ‘Her Guy’

Upon seeing Meghan McCain’s appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show,” I’d give anything to be friends with her–mainly because she screamed “Romney 2012!” outside of actress Sarah Jessica Parker’s $40,000 per person Obama fundraiser, which rightfully drew the ire of a lot of New Yorkers.
McCain is also kind of a badass for calling SJP out her informal way of talking about the president in a new campaign ad, which features the “Sex and the City” star referring to Obama as “the guy who ended the war in Iraq, the guy who says you should be able to marry anyone you want, and the guy who created 4 million new jobs.”
“My problem with that ad is, I don’t like calling the president ‘my guy,’” McCain, who said she will not be voting for Obama this November, explained on the program. “He’s the president of the Oval Office. I don’t like reporters interrupting him in press conferences. This is the President of the United States of America. Don’t refer to him as ‘that guy.’…I think it’s kind of trashy.”
Amen, sister. I don’t care how tight you are with the president: he’s not your ‘bro’. She’s also right that it’s insane to vote for a candidate based on his/her popularity among Hollywood types:
“I’m not big on celebrities with politicians in general, I don’t think that’s what it’s about…I think it’s about nominating and supporting the person you think is going to lead the country…I don’t know who [thinks], ‘Sarah Jessica Parker’s endorsing Obama, well I’m going to do what Sarah Jessica Parker does.’ I don’t know who thinks like that.”
In a nutshell, she nailed the TV interview, and hopefully it’ll serve as a reminder to staunch conservatives that McCain is, in fact, a Republican.
